Chronicles of Canada Volume 8 - The Great Fortress : A Chronicle of Louisbourg 1720-1760


Published November 14, 2007


Librivox recording of The Great Fortress : A Chronicle of Louisbourg 1720-1760.

Louisbourg was no mere isolated stronghold which could be lost or won without affecting the wider issues of oversea dominion. On the contrary, it was a necessary link in the chain of waterside posts which connected France with America by way of the Atlantic, the St Lawrence, the Great Lakes, and the Mississippi. But since the chain itself and all its other links, and even the peculiar relation of Louisbourg to the Acadians and the Conquest, have been fully described elsewhere in the Chronicles of Canada, the present volume only tries to tell the purely individual tale. (Summary from Book preface)
